This is truly an amazing story of two children who survived the holocaust. Yes, children. Rose and Max were only young teenagers when they were sent to the camps! These stories are always horrifying, but the optimism and hope that these two had is what makes their story so hopeful and beautiful. I met Rose at a book signing and she was such a joyful lady! Her inscription in my book: “Never give up hope.” I am so thankful she and her husband Max shared their story in this book.

This somehow brought me closer to the story than had it been written in the past tense.

I definitely enjoyed this book. It’s informative and important and I plan to attend Rose’s event in San Diego to bear witness to her life and to keep her legacy alive. It’s an amazing story of loss and love. I wish that it had been written better. It’s a little dry and not as descriptive and storylike as I would have hoped. The story is unbelievable and amazing, but reads more like a biography. I definitely think it’s an important subject and a book we should all buy to support survivors, but I ...more

I have long been interested in learning more of the events of WWII. Specifically, the events in Europe and what we need to learn and remember today. This book embodies family, love, loss, tragedy, and tells the horrors of the political climate in Europe during that time. Recommended reading for all!
